The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are available to preorder today. Place your order today and Apple’s latest smartphone will arrive in your hot sweaty hands on 16 September.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then here are some highlights of the iPhone deals from UK networks and retailers selling the 7 and 7 Plus.

Bought direct from Apple, the iPhone 7 starts at £599, unlocked and SIM-free. It’s also included in an upgrade programme in which you can pay for the phone in monthly instalments then swap it for the next model in a year’s time.

Carphone Warehouse is also selling the new iPhone, and will give you a trade-in deal of £200 on your iPhone 6.

As usual, all the networks offer the iPhone with a contract, including EE, O2, Three and Vodafone.

Three deals come with Feel At Home, which gives you free roaming in a wide range of countries.

O2 includes the iPhone in its Yearly Upgrade Programme, which means you’ll be able to trade it in for a brand spanking new iPhone 8 (or 7S, or whatever it’s called) in a year’s time. Selected deals also allow you to stream music from SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes or Deezer without eating into your data allowance.

Deals from EE include the option of six months’ subscription to the Apple Music streaming service, as well as a BT Sport subscription to watch, you guessed it, sport. At the time of writing, EE’s website was down, placing visitors in a queue.

Meanwhile Vodafone customers on selected plans can choose to subscribe to Spotify Premium, Sky Sports Mobile TV or Now TV.

The Apple Watch Series 2 also goes on sale on 16 September.

Here are the prices of the two new phones in a handy-dandy table:
